I went to Earlstown Market this morning and what a rip off market it has become. I like a kipper for Saturday and Sunday breakfast so normally get a blue packet with two kippers in it so one for each day.At the end of December they cost me 1-80 a pkt,but beginning of January they went up to 2-20 a pkt and today they have gone up again to 2-50 a pkt I will buy no more.

Also fresh fruit which was normally sold by weight is now sold by numbers. A jaffa 60 p each or 2 for 1, apples 40 p each or 3 for 1 and plums 3 for 1 I didn't see any grapes but God knows what they will charge for them. The market itself used to be a good one and was well attended,but today there was only half the stalls on that usually come. They are killing it just like they did with Ashton Market.

Haven't been to Earlestown market in years, a lot of fabric stalls was coming on then, so stopped going.
